Publisher's Description

Con 250.000 copias vendidas, Cuando ayudar hace daño es un clásico moderno formador-de-paradigmas en el tema del alivio de la pobreza y el ministerio a los más necesitados. Enfatizando la pobreza del corazón y de la sociedad, este libro expone la necesidad que cada persona tiene y como puede ser aliviada. El lector, es guiado a comprender que la pobreza es mucho más que la simple falta de recursos materiales y financieros y que conlleva mucho más que donaciones y caridad solucionar el problema de la pobreza.

Este libro, expone los esfuerzos del pasado y del presente por parte de las iglesias, que  sin querer, han debilitado a la gente que estan tratando de ayudar. Sin embargo,el objetivo central es presentar estrategias que desafíen a los cristianos a ayudar a los pobres a superarse. Enfocándose en Norte América y en contextos mayoritarios, Cuando ayudar hace daño cataliza la idea de que el cambio verdadero para la gente que vive en la pobreza no viene de fuera hacia dentro, sino de adentro hacia afuera.

With 250,000 copies sold, When Helping Hurts is a paradigm-forming contemporary classic on the subject of poverty alleviation and ministry to those in need. Emphasizing the poverty of both heart and society, this book exposes the need that every person has and how it can be filled. The reader is brought to understand that poverty is much more than simply a lack of financial or material resources and that it takes much more than donations and handouts to solve the problem of poverty.

While this book exposes past and current development efforts that churches have engaged in which unintentionally undermine the people they're trying to help, its central point is to provide proven strategies that challenge Christians to help the poor empower themselves. Focusing on both North American and Majority World contexts, When Helping Hurts catalyzes the idea that sustainable change for people living in poverty comes not from the outside-in, but from the inside-out.
